Quickbooks 2020 and Big Sur

I know that Quickbooks hasn't verified the Quickbooks 2020 will work with Big Sur. And, older versions of QB don't seem to run at all.  However, I've seen posts from some QB2020 users that they are able to open and use QB2020 after installing Big Sur.


Quickbooks has indicated that there may still be issues with QB2020 and that some features may not work as expected. Has anyone documented what features seem to be buggy?  Is there any indication that the data is corrupted after a switch to Big Sur?

Quickbooks 2020 and Big Sur

Thanks for joining us here today, @Dave_68.


I have some information about QuickBooks for Mac 2020. As indicated in the system requirements. Big Sur isn't compatible with QuickBooks for Mac 2020. It means the software is not yet tested in this operating system. As a result, some features may not run correctly and seem buggy.


As a workaround, you can go back to the old operating system while Big Sur is on its Beta version. Learn more about the system requirements for QBDT for Mac 2020 at this link: System requirements for QuickBooks Desktop 2020 and Enterprise Solutions 20.0.

Feel welcome to message me anytime if you still have questions or concerns. I'm always here to help. Take care and have a great weekend ahead.

Quickbooks 2020 and Big Sur

Perhaps I should have been clearer -- I have not yet upgraded to Big Sur given the current compatibility issue.  I was asking the community if anyone with QB2020 who has upgraded to Big Sur might share their experience -- what seems to be working, what isn't and whether or not there is any sign of data corruption.

The calendar function for selecting dates is not functional


Quickbooks 2020 and Big Sur

Thanks for joining this conversation, @Sblackburn.


May I know what specific version of QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac you're using? I appreciate it if you can provide any additional information in the comment below.


Also, if you already upgraded your OS version to Big Sur as well, this may be one of the possible reasons why you're unable to use the Calendar option. Since Big Sure is still on its Beta version, some of QBDT's features may yet function properly.


I'll go ahead and take note of this concern. You may our Blog site in the meantime. This is where we share recent happenings and future developments, such as updates to newly added features.


For more information about the operating system, hardware, software, and other requirements to run QBDT, check out this article: System requirements for QuickBooks Desktop 2020 and Enterprise Solutions 20.0.


Please leave a comment below if you have any other issues or concerns. I'll be here to help. Have a great day!

QB Mac Desktop 2020; I have already upgraded to Big Sur and appreciate that it is still in beta phase.  Assume QB will eventually update the program.  Thank you.
